When the time comes to purchase new ink for your HP Deskjet F340 Inkjet Printer you'll find yourself presented with a choice that can be more complex than it first appears. That is the choice between genuine ink that has been manufactured and approved for use with your printer by HP and a third-party alternative. Although it is tempting to make the decision between the competing options based on purchase price alone, in reality, there are a larger number of factors that you should be taking into consideration. All of these can impact the cost of each page that you print using your HP Deskjet F340 Inkjet Printer so they're well worth taking into consideration from a financial point of view.
Things to consider when buying supplies for your HP Deskjet F340 Inkjet Printer
As well as the cost of the cartridge, make sure that you think about the number of pages it will be able to print before needing to be replaced, the quality of the prints that it will produce and the environmental track-record of the manufacturer. The genuine HP Deskjet F340 Inkjet Printer cartridges can print up to 190 pages. It's also important to check that there's no risk of your chosen cartridge causing damage to your printer. This has been known to happen in the past and as the inks are not approved for use by the manufacturer, any problems won't be covered under your warranty or service agreement.
Print more quickly and efficiently with your HP Deskjet F340 Inkjet Printer
Your printer is able to perform most quickly when it's set to draft mode. However, many third-party inks cannot produce acceptable quality prints in this setting. That means that you'll have to choose a more ink intensive and slower mode in order to get good quality prints. This can mean that the cost per page is actually higher with third-party inks than with genuine HP originals, a factor that you'll want to make sure you consider before you make a purchase.
